  • 1 1/2 cups powdered shugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar

Basic royal icing

  • 1/5 lbs powdered sugar
  • 1 TBS meringue powder or 2 egg whites
  • water

Cookie Icing

  • 1 lb. powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 c butter


  • Mix flour, baking soda and cream of tartar in a small mixing bow.
  • Cream sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, almond extract together.
  • Add dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Divide dough into two logs between wax paper; refigerate at least 1-2 hours.
  • Slice dough into disks.
  • Bake at 375 F for 7-8 minutes.


  • Mix on low with 2 TBS water.
  • For thicker mix well to thin it out add more water.
  • You’ll want it pretty firm for these cookies.
  • Divide and dye the icing.
  • Using a small round tip draw faces and Poseidon tridents onto the wax paper and allow to dry completely. Mine took about an hour.


  • You could frost the whole cookie in royal icing but I love the flavor of this recipe so I decided to do that and just make the little symbols out of royal icing.
  • Beat all ingredients (add a couple drops of water to thin).
  • Divide and color with food coloring.
  • Spread onto cooled cookies
  • carefully remove the royal icing symbols by bending the wax paper away once they are fully dry and place them on the icing while still wet.
